‘Share the Shame’: Mortified celebrates 20 years

In the popular storytelling series, participants talk about their most embarrassing childhood artifacts and the lessons they learned.


For two decades Mortified has been building a global movement encouraging people to “Share the Shame” by taking a look back at their childhood through poems, diaries, home movies, art projects and more — and share the mortifying stories behind them.

Reset learns more about the 20th anniversary event taking place next week in Chicago.

GUESTS: David Nadelberg, founder, Mortified
